Using the compfonts script (available in my folder on our team
repository, a lot quicker than with gucharmap) I can see that:
Ө U+04E8 CYRILLIC CAPITAL LETTER BARRED O
ө U+04E9 CYRILLIC SMALL LETTER BARRED O
Ү U+04AE CYRILLIC CAPITAL LETTER STRAIGHT U
ү U+04AF CYRILLIC SMALL LETTER STRAIGHT U
are available in ttf-sil-charis, ttf-sil-doulos, ttf-dejavu, some fonts
in gsfonts (and maybe other packages, I didn't check the whole archive
as the script runs the comparison on installed fonts only and I didn't
take time to install every font).
Looks like we already have what is needed but could you also test on
your side and confirm that these open fonts provide appropriate support?
